The company began as a small supplier of standard wiring channels, cable ladders and trays, mechanical supports, concrete anchor channels, cable clamps, hangers and a limited range of power skirting with service outlets and accessories. These internationally tried and tested products still make up the backbone of the business. When the British GKN Group of companies stopped operation of their Engineering Services Division at the end of 1984, O-line took the opportunity to acquire the rights of GKN Sankey’s local patents, thereby adding a number of new products to our range.
Rapid but controlled growth, necessitated the move to 14/16 Prop Street, Selby Extension 11, Johannesburg, which houses O-line’s administrative headquarters and warehouse.
